Virtual Air New Zealand Ltd, is based on Air New Zealand ©, a real-world New Zealand based airline. We currently operate a full flight schedule based up the flight schedules and timetables of the real world carrier using a full fleet of aircraft, as used by the real world carrier.
We do not have an affiliation with the real Air New Zealand ©, or any other real world airline. No products are offered for sale, this is not a commercial site and no money is made from this site. It is an airline purely for the MS Flight Simulator enthusiasts.
Virtual Airlines can emulate the operations of real-life airlines for people of all ages and backgrounds. Virtual Airlines are solely for users of flight simulation software. We simply operate to extend the fun and value of MS Flight Simulator and other simulators of the like and give the users an extension to their hobby.
Before joining us, we encourage all prospective pilots to read this page, as well as the Operating Procedures to make sure they understand the rules of the airline, and also to look over the airline fully before deciding if they would like to join us or not.
Virtual Air New Zealand operates from it's home base in Auckland, New Zealand. We only have one Hub at present located at Auckland International Airport. All pilots are currently assigned to this Hub, but as we open other hubs, pilots will be given the choice of moving Hubs, and new pilots will be given the choice of what Hub they would like to fly from.
Members and pilots of vANZ will need to have a copy of either MS Flight Simulator 2000, 2002, FS9, or FSX plus the relevant add on aircraft for the company. It is preferred that pilots use FS 9 or FS X, but users of previous versions are most welcome to use their version while flying for us.
vANZ requires its pilots to log a minimum of one flight per month. As soon as new pilots receive their pilot identification number, they can start operating flights from our schedules..
Pilots from other Virtual Airlines can transfer some of their previous flight time to vANZ. Please note on pilot application previous VA hours, company, pilot ID and URL to previous VA on your application.
